Annual Auction and Benefit
Every year in the spring, ACDS proudly hosts our Annual Auction & Benefit Soiree. This event supports the ongoing needs of our non-profit school and funds essential programs that facilitate learning for students and faculty.
Our Auction & Benefit Soiree is an evening of fun and fundraising for the ACDS community to benefit our teachers and students. Past fun and games have included Casino games, a Live Auction, Heads or Tails interactive game, dinner, dessert, cocktail bar areas, and music.
In addition to our Auction and Benefit Soiree, we also host an online auction full of amazing items. Past auction items have included one-week at a Cabin Retreat, 49ers tickets, Disneyland VIP experience, Penthouse Suite and Zamboni Ride for the San Jose Sharks, one-week at a Luxury Beach House, Private Cooking Class and Head of School for the Day.
